Examining the Sociocultural Impact of The Bachelor

The Bachelor aired its first season in 2002, and it has become one of the most commercially successful shows in reality television history—boasting several spin-offs and an ardent fan base. As the franchise has risen in popularity and prominence, it has weathered a fair deal of controversy and has been subject to harsh critique from critics and viewers alike. During this interactive webinar, hosted by Adriane Stoner, PhD, faculty member in the College of Communication, attendees will take a closer look at values seemingly upheld by The Bachelor franchise, as well as the show’s representation (or lack thereof) of different communities, backgrounds and perspectives.
